I'm currently working on a method that I think can increase a person's chances of
winning the jackpot. Obviously it's impossible to guarentee a win unless you
buy every single possible combination. The method is extremely time consuming
and expensive and can only guarentee a minimum cash back amount. But once I
have it hashed out I was hoping I could post everything I have here and see if
anyone is willing to work with me on improving the method to further increase
the odds, cut down on the cost, and increase the minimum guarenteed
reimbursement.

Because of the current cost (\$552 each time you play) the method is designed to be used only for lottery pools
and in games with large pay off amounts.

The idea is to target the 2 minimum prizes which are the Mega Only tickets and the
Mega plus 1 tickets.

The idea is to purchase 552 tickets in sets of 12. 12 tickets for each of the 46 mega #s. And within each set of 12,
52 numbers 1 through 56 played once and 4 numbers 1 through 56 played twice.
Within the 552 tickets 640 of the 1540 possible 2 digits combinations will be
repeated 3 times each and the other 900 repeated 4 times with no repeating 3, 4, or
5 digit combinations.

I'm currently making a chart of all winning lottery numbers from Sept 6, 1996 to
the present and comparing all the combinations. I'm only 1/2 through it but so
far it looks as if there has never been a repeat of any 5 + M combos, 5 number
combos, or 4 + M number combos. And so far I've only found a repeat of two 4
number combos and a small handful of 3 + M number combos.

I'm still working on the numbers but I believe the chances of winning the jackpot using this method
are 1 out of 325391.7333.

This
method will guarentee ONLY ONE of the following possible winning combinations:

One 5 + M, Four 1 + M, & Seven M only

One 5 + M, three 1 + M, & Eight M only

One 5 + M, two 1 + M, & Nine M only

One 5 + M, one 1 + M, & ten M only

One 5 + M & 11 M only

One 4 + M, one 2 + M, three 1 + M, & seven M only

One 4 + M, one 2 + M, two 1 + M, & eight M only

One 4 + M, one 2 + M, one 1 + M, & nine M only

One 4 + M, one 2 + M, & ten M only

One 4 + M, five 1 + M, & six M only

One 4 + M, four 1 + M, & seven M only

One 4 + M, three 1 + M, & eight M only

One 4 + M, two 1 + M, & nine M only

One 4 + M, one 1 + M & ten M only

Two 3 + M, three 1 + M, & seven M only

Two 3 + M, two 1 + M, & eight M only

Two 3 + M, one 1 + M, & nine M only

Two 3 + M & ten M only

One 3 + M, two 2 + M, two 1 + M, & seven M only

One 3 + M, two 2 + M, one 1 + M, & eight M only

One 3 + M, two 2 + M, & nine M only

One 3 + M, one 2 + M, one 1 + M, & nine M only

One 3 + M, one 2 + M, & ten M only

One 3 + M, two 1 + M, & nine M only

Four 2 + M, one 1 + M, & seven M only

Four 2 + M & eight M only

Three 2 + M, one 1 + M, and eight M only

Two 2 + M, two 1 + M, and eight M only

Two 2 + M, one 1 + M, and nine M only

One 2 + M, three 1 + M, and nine eight M only

Nine 1 + M & three M only

Eight 1 + M & four M only

Seven 1 + M & five M only

Six 1 + M & six M only

Or

Five 1 + M & seven M only

Please don't think I'm nuts.  I know this isn't a practical method in it's current state.  Once I have all the comparisons done and 552 test combinations picked out to use and compare against up coming winning combos I might have a better idea of how well it works and if there is a way to improve upon it.  If anyone else is interested in working on it, I'd be greatful for the help and am willing to share what I have so far with anyone else.

You're far from being nuts, as you say. Very practical if you ask me. I can see where you're targeting tickets in sets of 12. I think it's a good start. Keep up the good work and if I can help you in anyway, don't hesitate to ask.

Because of the current cost (\$552 each time you play) the method is designed to be used only for lottery pools
The idea is to target the 2 minimum prizes which are the Mega Only tickets and the
Mega plus 1 tickets.

Since that are only 46 megaballs, targeting the minimum prizes of 0+1 or greater only cost \$46 now, \$552 allows you to repeat that strategy twelve times which guarantees a minimum of twelve 0+1 or greater prizes or possible more since the overall odds of winning a prize are 1:40.  You can guarantee a minimum match of 0+1 by playing all 46 megaballs but players are hoping to do better when they spend that much.

I look forward to you posting your method once you have it hashed out, good luck to you.

I have used the 46 combo 2 if 5 wheel but never really experimented with running it 12 times because of the cost. It will be interesting so see which method MathJunkie uses.

Once such strategies are consider seriously, it costs nothing to simulate them to see what would have happened.  It's just that most players don't simulate and study strategies they aren't thinking seriously of using.

It could be you might not use a 46 line wheel twelve times or twelve different ways but a 552 line wheel or some other strategy for picking the 552 lines of core numbers.

MathJunkie,

The results of your strategy will probably be proportional to what is summarized here:
